Risch: Cruz spilled classified info

Idaho Sen. Jim Risch, who has endorsed Marco Rubio for president, suggested on CNN today that rival GOP candidate Ted Cruz revealed classified information during last night’s Republican presidential debate. Cruz was talking about telephone surveillance programs aimed at detecting terrorism. After he said the new program is more effective than the previous one, Rubio responded, “I don’t think national television in front of 50 million people is the place to discuss classified information"/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: So, do you think Ted Cruz really committed a no-no? Or is this just about gotcha politics?
